Could this plugin support WordPress shortcodes? Tweet, YouTube etc. shortcodes would be very useful for livebloggers especially as has the shortcode in the Tweet embed.

Original forum post that led to this issue --> If any enhancement is done directly to Liveblog, I'm willing to test. Thanks!

I don't know if I understand the original question. I added in shortcodes directly to the live blog in the frontend and it displays the shortcodes just fine after page refresh.

@Bwade it shouldn't require a page refresh, it is meant to be a live blog. Also when I last tried the shortcodes stayed as shortcodes, didn't expand into embeds.

I totally agree with that comment, "It is live and shouldn't require a refresh". I have been testing for some time now and the end user will see the embed and not the shortcode. The refresh is only for Admin. I would love to see this get fixed so when I, as admin, post a shortcode that it renders the embed.

@Bwade @paulmwatson The GitHub issue doesn't match the original issue I posted. The issue wasn't with shortcodes -- it was with oEmbeds not resolving. See my previous comment above for the link to the forum post that spawned this GitHub issue.
